Debbie Hang, BS
Advisory Board Member
Debbie has been part of her husband’s orthodontic practice (William M Hang, DDS, MSD) since its inception. Not a dentist, but known as a “doctor of details”, she has come to know the art and science of orthodontics and practice management. Until recently retiring from the clinical practice, she oversaw the practice’s day-to-day operations, was the practice treatment coordinator, and continues to be the executive director of OrthO2Health™ which provides educational opportunities for dental professionals. She is also a contributor to the strategy of changing the orthodontic profession from a retraction based, straight teeth-oriented profession to a health-centered, airway aware profession that produces beautiful smiles and balanced faces.
Work outside the orthodontic office has included chairing the Allocations Committee of the Rutland County (VT) United Way which earned her the organization’s Achievement Award. She also served as President of the Community Leaders Association at California Lutheran University earning the William E Hamm Outstanding Service Award.
Debbie and her husband Bill Hang were both awarded Lifetime Achievement Awards by the AAPMD (American Association of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry) in 2016 for their work "in advancing the awareness of airway issues within the medical/dental communities and with the public.
